Share Your Best Blogging Tips

21 Comments

Hello Everyone,

It has been 6 wonderful years here on wordpress and I would not have had such a great journey without your support and encouragement…In lieu of this appreciation I would like to reach out to my fellow bloggers and ask you to share your best tips in blogging with the new bloggers out there…Please leave your tip or thoughts in the comment section and I will then go through them and compile a list in another post linking the blog address of the writers who share their tips. Comments will be open until March 15, 2020 so I hope you share what has worked for you in your journey. Please keep your tips professional and positive any rude or hateful comments will be removed.

I will start with one tip that has helped me…

Personally, I feel authenticity in connecting with fellow bloggers has really helped me grow. Reading the works of others and leaving a thoughtful comment goes a long way and makes the writer/photographer want to engage with your blog instead of simply stating ” Check out my blog” without any other comment. It is actually one of things that can turn someone off towards you, as it may come across as you having no interest in that person’s blog apart from marketing your own and that does not allow for an authentic connection. We all want our works to be read but we need to put an effort to connect and genuinely read someone else’s work instead of using it as a promotional tool…promotion will happen organically if the connection is made.

  1. When it comes to blogging or sharing one’s writing, we’re donning vulnerability. I’d say these three things:

    1. Find your niche. (This is to also say, “Know your audience.)

    2. Be authentic. If this is what you want, be ready to share yourself, your true self. Your readers, if they’re anything like me, want to connect with you. They want to relate in some way to/with what you share.

    3. Read others and connect with them.

    β€’Bonus: Have fun. Always have fun.

    These things have worked for me. This is my thirteenth year on WordPress and I’ve had several blogs on here, I’ve settled on my current one. Good luck new bloggers!

  2. Keep it short, or at least as succinct as possible.

  3. Loved your post, My Dear!! Really great advice!! I can’t tell you how much reading the works of others has helped my writings and given me wonderful seeds of inspiration for my own poems. I have also found that writing comments has given me great seeds of inspiration from my own comments – How Cool Is That!!! Bellissimo, My Dear!!!

  4. I’d say:

    – Stay true to yourself
    – Write from within
    – Interact with others, go and find your tribe
    – Be ready to disagree
    – Share the love!

    Thanks Neha.

  5. Relax and enjoy the process of blogging.

    Check your sentence structure and spelling to be sure it is readable.

    Don’t worry about follower count, your audience will build as you consistently write.

  6. I don’t have a huge number of followers and the next few sentences will probably explain why. 1. If you are an unphotogenic old f*** like me trade your gravatar for a picture of a beautiful swan, or something. Make pictures – lots of pretty pictures and keep the written content short and relevant (like I do THAT!). Try to make your readers happy, but avoid attempting to become an ‘Influencer’ – it may happen, but there’s an awful lot already out there. Only follow blogs that genuinely interest you, so you can make your responses meaningful. I think that’s all I have to add…

    • haha certainly an honest feedback, although I don’t know how much the gravatar thing matters as seeing real human faces in all forms somehow makes it more authentic for me…I agree with not trying to be an ‘influencer’ but being attentive to your readers…thank you for sharing such an honest and genuine feedback~ I appreciate it!

  7. I like your point that our fellow writer can help us to improve our blogging skills. Because every writer has its own blogging journey and its great to share your experiences to make it more interesting and knowledgeable. Less follower is much better then buying fake followers. If we keep up the good work it will surly make a good return.

  8. Very informative and interesting. This was a good read. I have recently written a post on a similar subject. It would be great if you could leave a feedback. πŸ™‚ https://thelifestyleleader.wordpress.com/2020/04/07/to-blog-or-not-to-blog/
